Well, I hope that you have a fantastic St Patrick’s day! I was going through some old footage on Youtube and came across one of the funniest and most entertaining videos I have seen in a long time. 

This leprechaun was, known as the “Crichton Leprechaun”, came out over 15 years ago. The famous story was shot in the Crichton neighbourhood of Mobile, near Toulminville in the US. 

Sketches reported that the leprechaun looked like this.

The video came out before there even was such a thing as viral videos. It was the very early days of YouTube and has had over 4 million views. Have you seen it? Either way, enjoy this video. 

My favourite quote is “It could be a crackhead”🤣. Enjoy this iconic bit of Youtube history.
